Her "ERAS TOUR" began in Glendale, AZ in March 2023. It has generated a RECORD BREAKING Gross Revenue of US$1.5 Billion, and has added US$4.6 Billion to North Americas Economy. For Taylor Swift, that is just a WARM-UP / a rehearsal / a practice session, for the big events ahead. She has energy to burn; and her ambition is MIND-BLOWING. She is an Economic Phenomenon. Her Music and Business Acumen are SHARP and AUTHENTIC as her SENSE of Social Responsibility. "We LOVE her!! We have her back; and we are going HARD for her, BIG TIME.  MASSIVE Network Synergies!! Oh, Yeah!!!".

The tour had a rocky start because Extreme Demand for ticket purchases had CRASHED TicketMaster system and Break Streaming Records. She is Focus, Resilient, Clever, Tactical, and VERY Strategic. She has managed to complete the 27 North AmericaTour Dates in Inglewood, CA on Aug. 09, 2023. She showed her gratitude by donating Millions of dollars and Truck-Loads of provisions/produce and groceries from Farmers and Supermarkets to Food Banks in almost EVERY city where she has performed; and paying a BONUS of US$100,000 to EACH of the 50 Truck Drivers in her tour crew; and a bonus to ALL the other members in her entourage. Everybody is smiling, like they win the Lottery.

She is heading to Canada, Mexico, South America, and St. Lucia to perform a slew of shows from August 24 to Nov. 26, 2023. She knows how to Feed Fans Frenzy; and Brazilians cant get enough off her. She has Brazil on LOCK-DOWN, with shows in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.This has started a bidding frenzy among the other South American countries, as each country eagerly competes for a BOOST in Tourism, Employment Opportunities, and an Influx of cash to stimulate its economy and increase its GDP(the Rippple/Multiplier Effect). (The film/movie for the "Eras Tour" concert has generated over $100 million in Pre-Sale tickets. It has broken Box-Office Record. It will be shown in theaters and other outlets on October 13 & 14, 2023).

The AsiaAustralia, and European leg of the tour started in February 2024; and "SWIFTIES"(that is how she affectionately calls her legions of super fans) over there are Super Excited/Elated. There are THREE sold-out shows in Australia (Sydney and Melbourne). It is "Taylor Swift mania in Australia!!". "You can feel the THUNDER down under!!" as over 300,000 Aussie Super Fans and Cross-over Fans RECIPROCATE the LOVE. Thank you, AUSTRALIA!!!. "We LOVE you, BIG TIME!!!" Oh, Yeah!!!

The UK leg of the "Eras Tour" starts in June 07, 2024. EXCITEMENT is in the air; and the CROWD becomes more electrifying as Taylor Swift graces the MAIN stage with REGAL SPLENDOR. They are enthralled and entranced with the SUCCESSES of the SUPER-STAR.

Due to OVERWHELMING demands, there are 15 back-2-back shows in 3 stadiums (Wembley, Anfield, and BT Murrayfield) in London, Liverpool and Edinburgh; and shows in Cardiff, and Dublin. There are 8 shows at Wembley stadium. Those venues are SOLD-OUT with RECORD-BREAKING attendance in EVERY venue. BRITS are experiencing the BIGGEST influx in TOURISM; and an additional 1 BILLION POUNDS (US$1.24 Billion) added to their GDP from the BIGGEST and most LUCRATIVE concert tour the UK has ever experienced. 

Taylor Swift is a Music POWER-HOUSE. She is the WINNER of SEVERAL Albums-of-the-year awards. She is ON-A-ROLL; and her MASTER-PIECES, monster hits, and Iconic Beats are Electrifying and Timeless. She is ROCKING the UK like a hurricane; and BRITS are having a BALL/a real BLAST. They will reminiscence about those events for the rest of their lives. Oh, Yeah!!!

"The Eras Tour", FOREVER!!!  Taylor Swift, FOREVER!!! LEGENDARY!!!

Thank you, BRITS for your OVERWHELMING Love, Support, and Hospitality. "We LOVE you, BIG TIME!!" Oh, Yeah!!!!!

There will be a total of 124 shows outside of North America. Each show has a 3.5-hour Set-List. OVERALL, this BLOCK-BUSTER and World-Record breaking Concert Tour will cross 5 Continents; and easily GROSS a conservative and realistic estimated revenue of US$4 Billion(An additional US $1.5 Billion in ticket sales; PLUS $1Billion in merchandise and film/movie ticket sales).

Taylor Swift is an astute business woman. Everything that happens in her organization has her approval. She ignores outside negativities/RUBBISH. She is pre-occupied with extending and enhancing her BRAND. She is in collaboration with British Fashion Designer, Stella McCartney. She cares about things that resonate and have an indelible impact on her Legions of Fans. She is the CEO and the COO of her organization -- A monumental/humungous undertaking; but she is proficient at delegating responsibilities and getting ASTRONOMICAL results. KUDOS to her!! Countries that host her shows have OPENLY/PUBLICLY thank her for boosting their GDP. Their STATISTICS have shown the BIGGEST influx in TOURISM and GDP (Economic Stimulus) before the Pandemic, and after the Pandemic.

HOTELS, MOTELS, and AirBNB rooms are completely SOLD-OUT because of EXTREME demands; and MANY VISITORS are paying for LODGING in their FRIENDS and FAMILY members homes. Airlines, Banks(foreign exchange), Cruise Ships, Charter Tour Companies, Local business owners, Taxi owners, Rental vehicle companies, and Gasoline Stations are flushed with an Influx of Cash from tourists and concertgoers. This is also due to Record-breaking attendances, Sold-out venues, and Sold-out merchandise in EVERY country. Lets see how the "GUINNESS BOOK of WORLD RECORDS" will handle that. Oh, Yeah!! Log on to TicketMasters.com, Wembley Stadium, etc today, and get your tickets for the events/venues. We are going HARD for her. Oh, Yeah!!!!!!!

We will ensure your tour is FINANCIALLY successful.

You are "On-A-Roll"; and you are entertaining your Super-Fans with a medley of sing-along fan favorite hit-songs from your multi-platinum catalogue; and bedazzling the Media, Cross-over fans, Advertisers, and Sponsors with Back-2-Back monster hits from your grammy winning albums and your legendary on-stage theatrical performances; making each show/event an extravaganza, a masterpiece, and a commercial sensation, with stratospheric success accross the world - "Straight-up, Legendary!!" Time Management is VERY important to us. You have a lot of work to get done. Lets start TODAY!!

#2)

In-residence Artists and DJs who have a Contract with/from a Casino or Hotel/Resort:-

If you received income and you didnt file your tax returns(IRC Sections 111, 701, 6601 and 6651), the IRS and States can come after you FOREVER because you dont have a Statute-of-Limitation. You are responsible for filing your tax returns and paying your taxes on time even if your management company or booking agency had promissed to do it for you. There are Artists, Actors, Actresses, Baseball players, and DJs who have had tax problems with the IRS and State. They have clearly discussed their experience in media interviews and in their booksLets start working on that today!!

#3)

Artists and  DJs who want to resolve U.S. or Foreign Tax problems:-

Interests and Penalties (Sections 6601 & 6651) for taxes owed are HOT. They can burn a BIG hole in your bank account (as high as 50% of the tax you owe). However, some of those interest and penalties can be completely forgiven. Filing for bankruptcy will damage your credit rating and wouldnt erase/wipe-out your tax debts; and the IRS and State will move quickly and put a LEVY against your bank accounts and a LIEN against your property and sell it at auction. If you have a mortgage on your property, the bank will come after you and your co-signers for full payment of the balance of the mortgage. That includes seizing the collateral that you pledged on your mortgage application form. You can ask those Artists, DJs, Actors, Actresses, and Baseball players who have had tax problems with the IRS and States. If you are DELINQUENT on Tax and/or Child Support payments in a Foreign Country, that debt should be settled before your plane lands in that countrys airport. Most importantly, respect the laws in those countries that host your shows/events. I can introduce you to people who have faced embarassing consequences for non-compliance. Your Entertainment Attorney will advise you accordingly. Lets keep it real!! Lets start working on that today!!

What we want UP-FRONT from Artists & DJs.

#1)If you are an Artist or DJ and you are planning a concert tour (for Verification and for Tax Planning purposes; and to save you millions of dollars in expenses and taxes) we want a copy of the contract that you signed with the Record Company/Label and with each Event Promoter or Booking Agent that book your tour/shows, including a copy of your Tour Schedule/Itinerary.

#2) If you are resolving a tax problem/dispute, in the USA or Overseas, we need a copy of the letter that you received from the IRS in the USA; or the IRD in the Foreign Country. Lets work on that TODAY!!

 

What  More Do We Bring To The Table

Clients are Eager and Happy to do business with us because they know they are in Capable Hands. "We dont monkey around!". We get things done quickly. We deliver exceptional results everytime; and we are not a "One-trick Pony". Hence, in ADDITION to those Benefits that we have discusses above:-

a) Are you planning to sign a new contract/record deal? How about a deal like this:-80% Royalty and 50% Publishing rights, in addition to keeping ownership of your masters? Thats Leverage!! That is where your Money, Wealth, and Negotiating Power are. We work with clients who have those deals.

b)If you are a singer-songwriter and you perform your own original songs, how about an exclusive worldwide publishing deal that covers your full catalog/catalogue and future works? We work with clients who have those deals.

c)How about Royalty Auditing to ensure you have received every contractual distribution from record labels, merchandizing, publishing companies, etc? How about Intellectual Property Valuation of your recording/publishing catalog and catalog acquisition, etc.?

d)How about the Taxation Aspects of Marriage, Separation, and Divorce? Time for a Reflection(A Reality Check). We have worked with Family-Law Attorneys on Prenuptial agreements in divorce Hot-Spots like California, New York, and the U.K; and we have been following activities in Divorce Courts in the USA and London; so we know whats "COOKING". Men and Women who have received Big Divorce Settlements are Smiling because they hit the Jockpot, while those who have ignored the importance of legally protecting their assets, because they fell too deeply in love, have become Sitting Ducks and ended up paying a Fortune in Assets distributionAttorneys feesetc., in addition to having severe Traumatic Experiences (sleepless nights, regrets, frustration, depression, addiction, therapy, and rehabilitation). That frequently happens to High Profile and High Net Worth people. Especially, those people in Sports and Entertainment. Go to divorce courts and take your own sweet time and read those dockets. Thats public information!! By the way, prenuptial agreements made by Middle Income people with Assets are on the rise. They too are getting wiser. Ha! ha! ha!....he! he! heeeeeee!

e)We bring decades of Practical Insights, Strong work ethics, Integrity, and Quick, Effective, and Efficient business execution strategies to EVERY area/niche in the entertainment industry (Music, Films, Fashion, Sports, and Culinary). We also have in-depth knowlwdge and "Industry-Specific" experiences in Real-Estate, Transportation, Hospitality, and Insurance. We work with clients in those industries every day (Those industries are listed on the left hand side of this website). We are current on issues that pertain to the USA and European Employment and Tax Compliance rules. Our clients have received Exceptional Results and Peace-of-Mind.  

 

Events Execution Plan

Here is an E-mail we received: - "I have just signed with Columbia Records and I received an advance against my recording contract. Would you like to be my business manager?"

Reply to the E-mail: - Thanks for your Inquiry. We have received many similar offers. I would suggest that you signed to a Management Firm that has ties to a Booking Agency. They have a Roster/List of Talent Buyers (Talent Scouts) and Concert Promoters who will book your concert tours/shows at venues in the USA and Overseas. We are Entertainment Tax-Accountants, Business Advisors, and PR ExpertsIf you need me to get involve/participate, I can work independently and/or in tandem with your team. You will benefit tremendously from TWO of my specialties:-

#1)

Public Relations & Crisis Management:- This is where the magic begins. This is where our UN-DIVIDED attention starts. We are Strategic, Tactical, and Factually-deep; and we are taking NOTHING for granted. We are leaving NOTHING to chance and NO MARGIN for error. This is where our PR Machinery goes into OVER-DRIVE. We are Pulling-Out ALL the stops. We are going HARD. Our clients LOVE the perfect timing and execution; and we could see those BIG SMILES on their faces. "We have EXCEEDED their expectations, BIG TIME!!". We have helped them promote/deliver unforgettable memories of their SOLD-OUT Concerts and In-residence Shows.

In SUMMARY, while you are pumping-up the crowd with lyrics, your tour schedule will spread across the world like wildfire. We will ensure that ALL your marketing and press releases are effective and released timely to adequately publicized each venue, keep fans camping outside the venue; and fill each venue up to the City Permit Limit  for Special Event, (NOT up to the venue capacity). (Using tight Security and Crowd Control Techniques in addition to having adequate Liability Insurance Coverage to protect you and your assets in case you are held liable for unforeseen contingencies such as "Inciting the Crowd" before and during the concert.

We have seen the dangers that Frenetic Crowd have caused in Mosh Pits (Moshing) as fans rushed towards the stage and became disorderly. The melee is horrifying and heartbreaking. We are talking about  Stampedes, Mass Casualties, Mayhem, Permanent Injuries, and Lawsuits, as Attroneys look for every loophole to hold Artists, Venue, Organizer, Promoter, Ticket Agent, and Security Company accountable and liable for putting profit ahead of the life of attendees. That could damage your brand and your sponsors brand. Iconic Sponsors and Product Manufacturers will DROP you QUICKLY/FAST because they dont want to be associated with anything that will DEVALUE their BRAND; and they no longer see VALUE in you

#2)

Tax Accounting & Financial Management:- We will ensure Strict  Budgetary Controls and  RIGOROUS Financial Oversights; and we will seek Recourse to Recoup shortages during EACH event and during every leg of the tour on the tour calendar. We have heard Artists Complained that Venues/Shows were SOLD-OUT; but they ended up almost BROKE. (A female Artist/Superstar sued her Management Firm for Financial Mis-management and received a court settlement of $10 million. That is public information. It is in the court dockets in Manhattan, New York).

Your income stream is a complexity of Royalties, Licensing, Intellectual Property, and International earningsWe will ensure that your earnings from multiple income source/streams:- (music sales, concerts, merchandise, commercials, endorsements,  spokesperson, sponsorships, music publishing, Logo lease, book publishing & sales, speaking engagements, guest appearances, sound tracks, ringtones, voice-overs, jingles, modelling, acting, etc.) from the USA and Overseas are received and are properly accounted for; and are in the appropriate bank accounts (local bank, overseas/offshore bank). We will monitor your investments performances because many Artists and Band Members have lost almost all their investments to Croked Business Partners and stock-market scammers/brokers. We will prepare a Personal and Business Tax Plan that will save you millions of dollars. in Expenses and Taxes. Tax returns will be filed in a timely manner and in accordance with U.S. and International tax rules/treaties (International Taxation).

Our Business Operations Policy (Transparency / Clarity of Agenda):-We care about your Well-being; and your Present and Long-term Financial Successes. You will NEVER get stuck in a contract with us. You can terminate your agreement with us ANYTIME. We have seen how PEER PRESSURE has affected Artists who have refused to be String Along ("Refused to go along to get along") and get Strung Out. You can count on us for STRAIGHT-FORWARD advice that will help you side-step Controversies, Mischief, Malevolence, Scurrilous Attack, and other "Halla-baloos"; and stay FOCUS, and maintain your SANITY/ PRUDENCE and SELF-ESTEEME in a SOMETIMES weird / creepy / toxic / demonic / predatory ENVIRONMENT. We do not disclose non-public personal information about our clients to anybody (IRC section 6713), except as permitted by law, through a power of attorney signed by our clients; or a court order directing us to make disclosure. We operate on the BUSINESS and PR sides of this industry; and we are Mission-Driven. We are focus on EXECUTION, FINANCIAL / FISCAL PRUDENCE, RESULTS, PROFITABILITY, and ACCOUNTABILITY. We DONT need CHEAP Publicity and we dont CRAVE Public Attention. We are NOT hungry for  SCANDAL and DRAMA; and we DONT get involve in Un-NECESSARY/USELESS Criticism of others, Hatred, Malicious Mischief, and Conflict of Interest. Those things CANT bring us MONEY. Hence, every new Artist/Client will undergo a Verification and Suitability Check even when our MOST Trusted Advisors recommend them to us. We are leaving NOTHING to chance. That is how we know when to REFUSE an opportunity. Similarly, EVERYBODY is free to scrutinize us BEFORE they do business with us (PRO-ACTIVE Risk Management). We are Transparent (above-board), Factually-deep, and VERY Specific; and we Honor Our Obligations. Everything that we have done for our clients was discussed with them, and approved by them(Written Consent); and a COPY was given to them. They have taken our advice; and NONE of them have had to endure Financial hardship, Taxation nightmares, Sleepless Nights, or file for Bankruptcy.("Duty of Care").

 

Our Fee:- Barrys Accounting Services, Corp. delivers superb service at an unbeatable price. We have THREE pricing/fee structures. Pick ONE:-

#1) GIVE US CREDIT:- Dont pay us! Keep the money, and give us credit on your new album that is ready to be released.

#2) FULL  PACKAGE:- The fee is 3% to 5% (Value for Money). This is a Flat Fee for each service that we PROVIDE. This fee is NOTHING in COMPARISON to the PRICE you PAID for a 360 deal. It is DIFFERENT and BETTER than a 360 deal/agreement.

#3)TAXATION only:- The fee STARTS at US $1,275. You have to file tax returns in EVERY STATE and COUNTRY where your concerts are held.

We have the EXPERTISE("Industry-Specific Knowledge); CLEAR VISION, SHARED-PASSION and WORK ETHICS. We are very efficient and business savvy. NOBODY works HARDER than us to bring clients EXCEPTIONAL results/benefits, and Peace-of-Mind EVERYTIME. You have a lot of work to get done. Time Management is VERY important to us. Call us or send us an E-mail and lets start, TODAY!

 

------------------------------  Overview  ----------------------

How I learn the Ins and Outs of the industry

#1)I have Studied Accounting & Taxation at NYU and the University of London.
